At Cooper, the safety of our guests and employees is of the utmost importance. That concern for safety is the deciding factor in all decisions regarding mountain access, which includes all means of uphill travel. The US National Forest Service acknowledges that ski resort operators have the ability to decide and define how ski trails and facilities can be operated, accessed, and utilized. This provides Cooper authority over land use within its Special Use Permit boundary. It is important to remember that uphill access via means other than the lifts is a privilege not a right, and thus your cooperation with Cooper Management and policies is what makes the opportunity for such activities possible.
If you plan to do any uphilling (skinning, snowshoeing, etc.) please familiarize yourself with what is expected of you by reading Cooper’s Terrain Access Policy.
- Child carrier packs, backpacks or chest packs, are prohibited at all times on the mountain.
- Be courteous to other guests and employees, be safe, and have fun!
